We’ve seen a lot of stunning work, and here are some of our favorite pieces from the filmmaking community all across the globe.
We hope you continue to create work that’s more interesting, more personal, and more rewarding as we head into 2021 and beyond.
"We wanted a more dream-like, vintage aesthetic [...] It might as well of been shot on film."Matt Perren, "EGO"DoP/Camera operator
"Overall, I couldn't say enough about the Orion Series."
— Tennyson Tanner, DP, "Find Your Path"
"We have had the interest in filming with Orion Anamorphics after several projects using the Cooke T2.3 Anamorphics and wanted to get a feel for their look. Overall, I couldn't say enough about the Orion series as we have used them on several shoots to date. The amount of Bokeh, slight chromatic aberrations and solid build are quite pleasing to the eye and touch. Looking forward to many more shoots with these lenses."
"We wanted to work with Atlas lenses because we wanted the viewer to have a real cinematic experience. These lenses have great character, almost vintage like, but with all the benefits of modern engineering: sharp but not too sharp and a solid housing."
— Tom Sijmons, Director and DP, “Shake it Off”
"The size, the look and the availability. At the time they were the only anamorphic EF lenses that were available. It also was an interesting set of 32, 50, and 80 so worked well with the night exterior shots. Well built, nice look and character."
— Dima Kalenda, DP, “Zero Two”
